Fresh farm produce is abundant at the food pantry! Surplus produce is available in the hallway. Even if you've already shopped at the pantry this month, you are welcome and encouraged to stop by for some of the overflow.
Dedicated to ending the cycle of generational poverty and fighting hunger, BPNN has provided food assistance to low and very low-income households in Verona and parts of Fitchburg and Madison for 30 years. Our recent relocation to a larger, more accessible facility last summer allowed us to expand our services to include legal advocacy, a free community meal every Saturday, nutrition education and culinary instruction, and dramatically increase the size of our food pantry. We provide space for a Joining Forces for Families social worker, a program to help young adults with disabilities transition from school to work, and other groups focused on eliminating hunger and homelessness. We are 100% volunteer - all funds raised go back into programming and keeping the lights on.
